01 Aug Will taking Full Spectrum Hemp Extract show up as a positive Drug Test for THC?
To put it simply, a consumer of high-quality whole plant hemp extract products at the standard serving size is highly unlikely to test positive for THC.
Please know that a whole plant hemp product, in the form of Full Spectrum Hemp Extract, rich with CBD, will also contain a trace amount of THC. A product that has only CBD isolate formulated with a carrier oil (better known as a CBD oil) will have no THC. However, many companies are mislabeling their products and also do not display legitimate third party verification for their product’s potency, so you would not know what is contained in your product.
With that said, though there are not enough scientific data published for an accurate answer to this question, an individual consuming about 3 to 6 mg of THC may result in detection of a positive urine test for THC and/or its metabolites 11-nor-delta9-caboxy-THC (THC-COOH) in up to 11% to 23% of the urine test assay. There is also some data demonstrating that at daily doses of 0.5mg of THC, the positive urine screen rate is less than 0.2%.
The good news is that we provide our certificate of analysis (COA) for potency for all of our products, from a certified third party lab facility, and it will clearly list the total amount of milligram (mg) of THC that is contained in our 1 oz (30ml) tincture bottle.
To calculate approximately the amount milligrams of THC per serving size, look at our COA attached to the specific product and find the total amount of THC listed. Then, divide that amount by 60 and this will show you the amount of THC per serving size. Note, all of our serving size is 0.5 ml (1/2 dropper).
For example, in our 1 oz 500 mg tincture (from the batch dated May 23, 2019), the total amount of THC in this 1 oz bottle was 23.04 mg. Thus, 23.0 4mg ÷ 60 = 0.384 mg, is the amount of THC contained per serving size. So if you are taking one serving of this product a day, your THC consumption is clearly less than 0.5mg of THC daily. At 2 servings of this product a day, you would be consuming 0.384 mg x 2 = 0.768 mg of THC, which is less than 1 mg of THC daily.
However, as you increase the doses of our tincture, to meet your healing needs, know that you will also increase your overall THC consumption per day.
Because we all metabolize THC differently, if your job mandates random urine drug testing, please be fully informed that specific regulations pose by your employee should be considered before you start any whole plant hemp extract product.
